Cassia closiana--Golden Cassia

Now blooming at the UC Botanical Garden, this plant looks like a small hill of deep yellow flowers with a few leaves here and there. Stunning! It is in the pea family, but it doesn't have those typical sweetpea-shaped flowers. Drought tolerant and long blooming, it seems like a good choice for bay area gardens.
